Searching a lot myself but thought I would post here to see if any of you guys have come across any good deals.

Needed this week as it is for business use.

Core 2 duo
2gb ram
bluetooth
webcam would be nice.

Price not really a major factor but say £400 and the cheaper the better, also a nice looking case would be nice for those business meetings. My mate owns a business and unfortunately due situations us men only know (women just don't get it) his lappy hit a wall over the weekend, lol. So he is in urgent need of a new one. Any business only deals would probably be fine as I am sure he is VAT registered.

Cheers for any help guys, all links will be looked into.

Thanks Marty mate.

Actually I am not really a laptop person, have never seen that site before, lol, so thanks for the link. Will weigh up these to what I have found (which is not a lot to be honest.)

Desktops are my main thing, easy to make money on, lappys can't really be tweaked as such so it's harder to blag a sale, lol.

Also it's my daughters bithday on the 25th mate, you still got any of those cards in? I will need one from you next weekend. You can either drop it off or I will pay postage, whichever is easiest for you mate.

EDIT:
Lol, just seen your second link, another I have not heard of, will have a look now.

Can anyone find a better deal than this one? I know I am back to Ebiuyer but this seems a little cracker considering what you get. (Forget Dell lads, he can't wait that long.)

For £399 you get the webcam, core 2 duo, 2gb ram, massive 250gb hard drive which is a major point for him, and the card reader. It also has dedicated 128mb video ram which is quite good considering most onboard cards are 64mb or less, the rest obviously topped up using system ram.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what the difference is between the T2 series and the T5 series of laptop processors? Both seem to have similar clock speeds and are listed as core 2 duo which makes me wonder what the differences are.

I imagine I could add a miniature bluetooth dongle to this, will only cost him a few quid extra.
